Savoy Grey Announcement

Friday October 10, 2014

Reich Paper just launched their new Savoy Grey its 100% Cotton To help celebrate the launch, Reich asked us to provide design and printing services for the 3 color letterpress + foil announcement, of course we said YES!. The Savoy Grey printed excellent and is available in 118#, 184#, 236# cover and 80# text weights. It’s super to see the mills broadening the choices of their fine paper lines, we hope the trend continues.










ITALIC Studio business cards

Thursday February 28, 2013

The gang over at Italic have been sending us some really great projects recently. We’ve also printed their business cards, which are a nice example of their work. Simple, bold and smart.

The design lends itself to our production processes wonderfully.  They selected a palette of four paper colors that were distributed randomly during the printing.  Black letterpress on the front of the card is juxtaposed against the duplexed gray sheet on the back, stamped with white foil. The beauty of duplexing colored sheets is that the cards essentially have a full flood of color on each side without the need for ink, and when the cards are trimmed to size they reveal a crisp pop of color on the edge.

So there you have it.  Smart design, three processes and of course, fine printing.

Much to our joy, we just completed the coveted SVC Wayzgoose invitations. Letterpress printed, gold foiled and diecut to a vintage ticket shape all on luscious Reich Savoy 236# Cotton. Designed by Jenny Wilkson.

Geometrically Pleasing

Tuesday February 8, 2011

TKTJ Design chose wisely when creating this geometrically pleasing farewell to twenty-ten. There is a unique balance that comes from the combination of Foil and Letterpress techniques. Here the impression created   turns negative space into competing shape and form on the page. The paper 118# Savoy by Reich Paper is our choice for pieces that fold, it doesn’t crack on the score, which helps achieve a clean look.  Savoy was also key in getting the desired dimensional look. 100# cotton means paper with soft flexibility, and looking at these photos you can see – and almost feel – the texture. Utilizing color, technique, and materials makes this piece really stand out.

TKTJ Design combined two print methods to achieve this luxurious card on 110# Crane’s Lettra cover. First we letterpress printed the tree line art in cool grey 11 and then added the subtle coverage of pearl foil. The ability to combine two print methods under one roof gave TKTJ Design the creative freedom to obtain both the unique coverage of foil stamping and the deep impression of letterpress, all under a tight holiday deadline.
